Barbie for big girls.

The Lady in Red: Part One

Photography, in my opinion, is just like any other art form.  Some days you can be inspired and others….nothin’.  When it comes to photographing my collection, this happens to me all the time.  Sometimes, I will be inspired by something that can fuel ideas for sets of shoots that will keep me in blogging material for a couple of weeks.  I love it when that happens!  I was inspired recently by one prop and a treasure trove of Jakki Peters hats that I picked up at the recent Fashion Royalty Convention.  The material that came out of those shoots has become some of my favorite shots for the entire year.  Hope you enjoy this series which I call….The Lady in Red.

    I’m a huge “Fangirl” of your photography but I’m sometimes afraid to look at your pictures since you often make me add another doll to my “Need That Doll” list, LOL. You’ve done it again with your stunning styling of Fascination.

    It’s interesting to read that you sometimes have photographer’s block. I have had long periods where my dolls don’t speak to me and I feel like giving them all away. Other times I have an idea that just doesn’t work no matter how I re-arrange the props, the lighting and camera angles!!!

    • Hey fangirl! LOL! That made me laugh because I am such a “fangirl” of your photos and the witty captions you put with them. If I had a quarter for how many photoshoots that turned into a complete and total bust..I’d be driving that new BMW I have had my eye on for eons. Thank you for the lovely comment 🙂

    Loving it Rebecca, That hat is great , the suit I believe belongs to me and you never returned it ……LOL Gorgeous styling. I agree with Laura above, I have been “encouraged” by your photos to spend money on a new doll and happy that I did . My latest was Victoire Roux and I haven’t looked back. I collect mostly 16″ so I would like to create a 16″ Roux doll. Your dioramas encourage me to be more creative even though I do not photograph my dolls. Thanks you for that

    • Thank you so much Don. Sorry…the Jedi mind trick will not work with the red suit…She’s a’ stayin’ with me :-). It was a bold try though..and “well played sir…well played”. Congrats on your new Victoire!! Love, love, love that face mold. I am very glad to hear that my photos are encouraging and give inspiration. I draw inspiration from so many sources, it’s nice to hear I am giving some back. A nice full circle feeling.
